Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
As part of its Strategic Plan, District 27 set out in 2022 to develop a district-wide Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Plan. Those who have collaborated to inform the work include:
A staff committee with 12 members across schools and departments.
A parent committee with 18 members including two Board of Education members and four staff members.
The District 27 Administrative Council.
A student committee that seats approximately 25 current students each year.
Our preK-8 learners will understand and take pride in their own intersecting identities, value the diversity of others, thrive in our interconnected world, advocate for self and others, and ultimately understand their capacity to positively impact their school, communities, and the world at large.
